Paper Abstract

Photoelectron spectra resulting from sequential or simultaneous absorption of two or three photons have been studied for ZnTe(110), ZnSe(110), and GaP(110) surfaces, with time resolution of the relaxation of carriers between the first and subsequent steps of excitation. Under 2.95 eV excitation and probing with 5.9 eV photons on ZnTe(110), we were able to follow the thermalization of conduction electrons, the subsequent trapping of electrons by surface defect states in the band gap, and the gradual relaxation toward defect states closer to the Fermi level. On GaP(110), the relaxation of photoexcited electrons and holes was studied by means of two-photon and three-photon photoelectron emission under 3.16 eV photon excitation.
